IRS Released Revised Form W-8BEN-E For Entities.

On Friday, March 14, 2014, we posted "IRS Revised FormW-8BEN For Individuals - What Form Do You Use For Entities?" Where we discussed that the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) had released revised IRS Form W-8BEN (Certificate of Foreign Status of Beneficial Owner for United States Tax Withholding (Individuals)).

The IRS Instructions for Form W-8BEN provided that Form W-8BEN IRS Form W-8BEN is now used exclusively by individuals and Entities should use IRS Form W-8BEN-E which was still in draft form.

We advised that taxpayers should use the old W-8BEN for entities, until the new one (coming out soon) for entities, W'8BEN-E comes out. Well the new Form W-8BEN-E has now been released.

The IRS released on March 29 the final version of the 2014 Form W-8BEN-E, a form required under the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act.

Form Form W-8BEN-E, Certificate of Status of Beneficial Owner for United States Tax Withholding and Reporting (Entities) is available at
